Re: Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective (from the creator of Phoenix Wright)

theblackdragon

I'm up into Chapter 8 so far. I kinda get what some of the critics are saying regarding the lack of genuine 'Eureka!' moments in this game, but then i've still got a ways to go in terms of figuring out everything that's going on. there might be something mind-blowing coming down the pipe for all i know. The gameplay is pretty ingenious, it's the trial-and-error that makes things interesting, and there are actually times where it's better to take the obviously wrong path in order to learn more about what's going on at a given point in time.

in some ways it's much more laid-back than the PW series, and in others -- obviously the timed aspect of the lifesaving puzzle sequences -- it isn't. the fact that you can keep rewinding time as much as you need to in order to get through a puzzle helps, though. i'm greatly enjoying the familiar feel of the conversations, the style of dialogue and such (internal thoughts being paranthetical and in blue, important words in orange, brief flashes before revelations or quick 'aha' moments, etc. and so forth), and there is definitely that same feel to the humor behind everything. Missile is the best, and I love love love those two security guards, lol... waiting for a stepladder reference someplace >:3

i have gotten a bit stuck in a couple places, but those were due to following dead ends or timing errors in puzzles that needed to be completed in exact sequence. the game will help you out by telling you when you've made a mistake you can't recover from so that you can go back to the beginning of the puzzle or, if you've altered the death scenario significantly, to one of the 'Fate Changed' checkpoints. the checkpoints do help to cut down the tediousness of restarting a puzzle over and over. haven't had to resort to using a guide yet, and for me that's a very good thing. :3

for now, i'm in love with this game. that may change the farther i get into it, who knows, but so far it's a breath of fresh air coming from a familiar place (because it's so similar to PW for me), if that makes any sense. i apologize, but i'm having a hard time describing it without referring to Phoenix Wright, which is bad for people who have no experience with that series... but my brain just keeps seeing similarities, hahaha.

Re: 3 cool Original gameboy advence games

theblackdragon

that last one is a counterfeit -- here's what Nintendo has to say about counterfeit games. not only is there a good chance it wouldn't work right anyway, there's also a good chance any battery in it is already dead, rendering any kind of saving impossible on it. it's not worth your time or money.

Re: Thread Disappeared!

theblackdragon

All right, so myself, Corbie, James, Zach, and Phil all have no idea who deleted the thread in question, but it wasn't any of us. All the other admins are usually hands-off when it comes to issues of moderation, so I'd have to assume one of two things:

(a) there was a server hiccup and the thread was somehow corrupted/deleted (which has happened before -- namely in the case of the original three-word-story thread, if you were around to remember that one)
(b) KaiserGX may have chosen to delete the thread himself.

Either way, as it stands, you're more than welcome to create another thread in the same vein if you like, though i will advise that if you're going to go through TinyChat or any other video-chat service to play a round, please be careful and do not give out any kind of personal information over the internet. Be very careful who you invite to such a game, too, considering a good portion of our userbase consists of minors. Don't attempt to talk someone who is uncomfortable into something they don't want to do, and don't let someone else attempt to talk you into something that makes you uncomfortable.

Re: how do you fix a wii game?

theblackdragon

with all those games acting weird, i'd suspect the lens. you can either try purchasing a lens cleaning kit, or you can just go ahead and set up a repair order with Nintendo (the latter would be a better choice if your Wii is still under warranty, really, but if it's not, be prepared to pay).

@Omega, shinesprite: to be fair, he did ask everyone present, and everyone was okay with him moving on. if you weren't in chat to vote, it's your own fault; justin.tv doesn't even require e-mail validation :3

@Raylax: sorry 'bout the Skype weirdness at first, i've never used it before so i had no idea i had to have a pair of headphones on. even tinychat gives the option of press-to-talk, i thought there'd be something similar here too
